Alban Arena: at the heart of the town
Originally known as St Albans City Hall, the Alban Arena opened in 1968 with a breath-taking performance by blues hero John Mayall - and hasn't looked back since. A firm favourite in the local community, the venue hosts a wide range of events, including films, concerts, plays and comedians. Right in the town centre, it is a short walk from sights like the clock tower, cathedral and Verulanium Park and is also easily accessible by train or car if you're coming from out of town. With several restaurants and pubs within walking distance, not to mention the bars in the theatre that usually open before the performance begins, you're spoiled for choice in terms of making your visit to the Alban Arena a proper treat. Not just confining itself to one genre in terms of the programme, the plethora of events on offer can be enjoyed by people of all ages and tastes. Among the broad range of Alban Arena tickets, you're bound to find something to suit.
Comedy to films at Alban Arena
The Alban Arena panto is one of the highlights of the Christmas season, drawing families from near and far to see these slick, star-studded productions with West End casts. The 2017 production of Aladdin was enjoyed by 42,000 people - which, given that the capacity of Alban Arena is just over 850, gives a good idea of how regularly performed and well-attended this seasonal treat was. Plenty of other family-friendly productions are held here throughout the year, while a local favourite is the long-running civic disco, which was traditionally held in the arena on a Monday night. Alban Arena films are also extremely popular, with the venue supporting the annual film festival as well as providing regular evenings dedicated to the silver screen. And with regular touring operas, theatre groups and ballets from Britain and abroad, there's no need to go all the way to the Royal Opera House or the London Coliseum to catch high quality productions - everything is right here.
